Merry Christmas (2017)

Merry Christmas.

Trapcode Particular 3 was used for the snow flakes, some stock images were used for the background and window frame from Digital Juice, the frosting over was done with footage from Rampant Design and Element 3D for the text.

 

SPLATTERKIST 10 Years Ago!

SPLATTERKIST 10 YEARS OLD!

It’s now been 10 years since the first MorseCode Productions short film was made.  Made back in 2007 for a short film competition, which had to be no more than 5 minutes long and include a cow!  It didn’t win but was a lot of fun to make for everyone involved, which gave us the need to make more short films, some of which won a couple of awards.  As it’s been 10 years I thought I would make a poster for the occasion.

Making a New short film

Making a new short film, it’s called “Spirit of the Woods”.  It’s about three friends that visit Sham Castle and get sent to a dimension, where in the woods a ghost hunts them for there soul.

 

 

Hour Glass with Newton and Element3D

The Newton plug-in was used to create the grains of sand falling down. The Hour Glass was made up of simple objects and repeated masks in Element 3D.

 

Bug bounce

Bugs bouncing around into a container using the Newton plugin for Adobe After Effects.  Element 3D was used to create the bugs.

 

Showreel 5

This is my 5th Showreel and includes clips from –

  •     Personal projects

  •     Short film

  •     Future Pro Wrestling (FPW) (DVD menu animation)

  •     This is Progress (Wrestler entrance animations).

Software used – Adobe After Effects, Adobe Premiere Pro and Adobe Photoshop. 

Plugins used -Trapcode Plugins and Element 3D

3D models that are not made by me are – BB8 and Corridor models are from Videocopilot and Old TV model is from The Pixel Lab

Trapcode Tao Tunnels

The tunnels are made with the Tao circle and the repeater.  Different textures and changes to the fractal deform to create different looking tunnels.  The camera and the lights are offset and parented to a centre null.

Inflating Logo

Inflating Logo using Trapcode Tao with animated Tao lights with a small amount of fractal displacement.  RedGiant Universe Glo Fi was used for the Designs word of the logo.

 

Music and Animations

Here is some original music made by Jake South titled Poly-Tune with animations in time to the music.  I used Trapcode Sound Keys to generate key frames to drive some of the values of the plug-ins Trapcode Tao, Trapcode Mir, and Element 3D.

 

Rainbow Woods

Here is a short video of Rainbow Woods in Bath.  I used my DSLR for the timelapse and a Gopro Hero 3+ Black on a gimbal for some smooth shots. Unfortunately the Gopro has some exposure and colour problems now.  So I had to pick and choose the shots that didn’t go too funny and applied RE:Vision Effects Match Color which helped in Premiere Pro.  The photos for the timelapse were edited in Lightroom then brought into After Effects to scale them down and animate.
